* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

“Ambitious modern British cuisine” – an “interesting” menu of “trendy but unfussy dishes that are well-prepared” – plus a good list of natural wines win consistent high praise for Nicholas Balfe’s “buzzy spot in Brixton market”, although “it can get a bit manic”. The team has opened a second venue, Levan in Peckham (see also).

“Capable and unshowy modern British cooking, using all sorts of influences” (plus de rigeur pickling and preserving) from a “very seasonal”, if “limited” menu scores the highest praise for Nicholas Balfe’s “fun” and “buzzy” fixture in Brixton Market – “one of those places where you want to eat everything on the menu” and with “a (mostly natural) wine list that’s interesting, too”. Top Tip: “superb vegetarian dishes”. Balfe and his team are opening a bistro, Levan, in Peckham in October 2018.

Hip-ly located upstairs at Brixton Market (with a new ground floor bar), this crammed-in café wins limited but all-round very upbeat feedback for its seasonal British grub, nowadays primarily veg-focussed, but with meat and fish accompaniments also available.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
